Victim opens eyes after sustaining severe injuries at Marathon

Marc Fucarile opened his eyes for the first time since the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15.

He opened them to a right leg amputated above his knee, burns across half of his body, a fractured left leg, and shrapnel lodged near his heart. He opened his eyes — which last looked out on a bloody Boylston Street — and the first thing he did was tell his fiancee Jen Regan, “I am sorry for being there. I love you and Gavin,” their 5-year-old son, according to a statement released by the family on Monday.
